This article is called “Am I going to burn in hell?” Now that is a serious question for all eternity. The answer to this question is also eternal. To many people lack understanding of the doctrine of hell. Their concept of hell, heaven, God, Satan and sin is distorted. Many only see God as the Big Ogre in the Sky that’s out to get you. Which is totally false. Just like the false concept of Satan dressed in red, with horns on his head and a pitchfork to gig you with. (Cartoons have presented God and Satan this way for years. Children think this is funny). Unfortunately, there are too many false concepts about this, (I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHAT I SAY HERE, THE BOOGY MAN MIGHT GET ME). Sorry, that was a bad joke. See, Hell is real and so horrible that we really should not joke about it. The saddest part is that it is “ETERNAL.”

Heaven is also Eternal. Many people do not believe there is a hell because they do not believe God exist, and God created hell, but why? You think God created hell just so He could torment and burn you? The answer to that question is NO. First, most people do not truly know who God is, and what He is like, and unfortunately, that is a fact. God has shown Himself to us in many ways, but they still reject Him. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” I would like to quote here from Got Questions .Com.


“We cannot know exactly what hell looks like or how hot it will be. But Scripture does use some descriptive language of hell, and that gives us an idea of what hell will be like. It is sure to be a place of torment, which the Bible often pictures as fiery. For the purposes of this article, the terms hell and lake of fire are used interchangeably.

Some interpreters take the Bible’s descriptions of hell to be symbolic, because some of the descriptions are difficult to reconcile with each other. For example, picturing hell as both fire (Matthew 25:41) and outer darkness (Matthew 8:12) seems paradoxical. Of course, the God of the impossible can do anything, including make dark fire. So, the descriptions could be literal. Even if the language describing hell is symbolic, the place itself is real—and the reality will no doubt be worse than the symbols.

The scriptural descriptions of hell are meant to emphasize the torment and suffering that will be experienced by those sent there. The “fire” may picture the wrath of God that is experienced by unbelievers in hell, whereas the “outer darkness” may picture the alienation from God’s love, mercy, and grace. Whether the vivid language is symbolic or literal, we can be assured that hell is a terrible, terrifying place. Possibly the most terrifying aspect of hell is its duration. The suffering is eternal. It has no end. For us, here and now, the concept of hell should drive us to the cross of Christ. It is only by repentance and faith in Christ that we can be saved from the wrath to come.

Here are some of the passages that describe hell:

Matthew 25:41, “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’”

Matthew 8:12, “But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

2 Thessalonians 1:6–9, “God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.”

Revelation 20:1015, “And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. . . . Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”

Romans 2:8, “But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.”

Matthew 25:30, “And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Hell, although we do not know exactly what it will look like, will be a place of unending suffering and torment from which there will be no escape. Therefore, now is the day of salvation. Now is the day for all to repent and believe the gospel. Now is the day for us to proclaim the good news that Christ has come to save sinners who trust in Him for forgiveness. Those who look to Christ now will be saved from the wrath to come (1 Thessalonians 1:9–10).

Hell and Hell Fire has become a controversial subject in recent years, even among Christians. However, the controversy is entirely man-made. The rejection of the reality of hell stems from a human inability  to reconcile the love of God with eternal punishment or from an outright rejection of God’s Word. Even some professing Christians have come to unbiblical conclusions. Some have tried to redefine hell, create an intermediate state not found in Scripture, or deny hell altogether. In doing so, they are ignoring Jesus’ warning in Revelation 22:19, “If anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.”

Hell is mentioned 167 times in the Bible, sometimes called Gehenna, Hades, the pit, the Abyss, or everlasting punishment (Proverbs 7:27Luke 8:3110:152 Thessalonians 1:9). Jesus spoke of heaven and hell as real places (Matthew 13:41–4223:33Mark 9:43–47Luke 12:5). The story Jesus told about the rich man and Lazarus was an actual event that demonstrated the reality of the two eternal destinations (Luke 16:19–31). Heaven is the dwelling place of God (2 Chronicles 30:27) where Jesus has gone to “prepare a place” for those who love Him (John 14:2). Hell was created for “the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41). But because every human being is a sinner, every person past the age of accountability has already been condemned to hell (Romans 3:105:12John 3:18). We all deserve hell as the just punishment for our rebellion against God (Romans 6:23).

Jesus was clear that “no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again” (John 3:3). He was also clear that hell is an eternal punishment for those who do not obey Him (Matthew 25:46). Second Thessalonians 1:8–9 says that in the end God “will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.” John the Baptist said about Jesus, “His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12).

John 3:18 explains in the simplest terms who will go to heaven and who will go to hell: “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” So, those who go to hell are specifically those who do not believe in Jesus’ name. To “believe” goes beyond a mental recognition of the truth. To believe in Christ for salvation requires a transfer of allegiance. We stop worshiping ourselves, we forsake our sin, and we begin to worship God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 22:36–37Mark 12:30).

God desires that every person spend eternity with Him (Matthew 18:142 Peter 3:9), but He honors our decision to accept or reject Him (John 4:14). Anyone who so desires can go to heaven (John 1:12). Jesus already paid the price for our salvation, but we must accept that gift and transfer ownership of our lives to Him (Luke 9:23). Heaven is perfect, and God cannot take anyone there who insists on holding on to his or her sin. We must allow Him to cleanse us of our sin and make us righteous in His sight (2 Corinthians 5:21). John 1:10–12 shows us the problem and the solution: “He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

We can choose to trust in Jesus’ payment for our sin, or we can choose to pay for our sins ourselves—but we must remember that the payment for our sin is eternity in hell. C. S. Lewis said it this way: “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’” God’s Will becomes their will.


I am thankful for the website Got Questions .com. They have given a great description from God’s Word. I hope you took the time to watch the short video? Satan was the original sinner and one third of the angels followed him. See, angels had “FREE WILL ALSO.” SO DO YOU, THAT MEANS YOU GET TO CHOOSE. They were judged and sentence to HELL because they SINNED. ALL SIN BELONGS IN HELL, IT IS CONTRARY TO WHO GOD IS. UNDERSTAND OUR SINS WILL PUT US IN HELL ALSO. It has ALWAYS been about the SIN ISSUE.

God made a way of Redemption and Salvation for humans. Mankind through sin lost our relationship and fellowship, all the way back in the garden of Eden with our original parents, Adam and Eve. Dear Reader, I ask a favor of you. The next time you are grooming and looking in the mirror, look closely, and tell me the person in the mirror has never thought anything wrong, never said anything wrong and never done anything wrong. Your own conscience will convict you.

Dear Friend, here is one thing that totally bothers me. I have heard people laugh and joke and say, “Well, when I get to hell, me and my friends are going to have a big beer party.” The Bible says there is not one drop of water in hell. In my humble opinion the worst thing on earth you can say to anyone is this: “GO TO HELL.” Knowing the eternal torment of this place, I would not wish this on anyone. 

When Jesus walked on this earth, HE preached more about hell than He did heaven. Sin must be paid for and that is exactly what He did. Jesus was God and was the only one that could pay for our forgiveness, from the Father. It cost Him everything including His life. You can push it all aside and say, “I do not want to be forgiven, I prefer hell, over heaven.” That is your choice. You can think I just will not choose, but you just did because you are rejecting the who paid for your sins. This article is called “Am I going to burn in hell? In all reality that will be up to you and your choice.

Romans 10:13 KJV says “For whosoever shall (ASK) call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” God will hear that pray, He will answer it and Save your soul. You will never regret it. If you did ask and call upon God for forgiveness, please let me know in the comment section so that I can rejoice with you. As the song says below, I am glad that my sins have been paid in full by the blood of the Lamb-and yours can be also.
